Posted Tuesday August 09, 2011, About: Posada not happy with new role
It's sad to see this... we all knew it was coming... I am a Sox fan, but Posada is one of my favorite ballplayers ever to wear the Yanks uni... he KILLS us... but how can you "hate" such a classy ballplayer? the guy just plays... I often liken Youkilis to Posada's style of play, because I think both guys are "gamers"... you all know what I mean... I've loved his style of play over the years... I cringed when the Yanks put him in to catch and wouldn't let him throw when he had the shoulder problem... to see this proud ballplayer have to eat the ball on steals was just horrible... I kinda feel the same about Wakefield... love the guy as a player, but we can't trot him out to the mound every 5 days, especially when we're facing the Yanks... These two proud warriors need to "ride off into the sunset"... and btw, Tek shouldn't be far behind... it's really tough letting go of our heros, but in this case, maybe it's time... Jorge, from a Sox fan, you've been one of the classiest ballplayers ever to wear pinstripes... Hate what you always do to us, but as a player, you're top-shelf.... can't say any more... there's just no way to say goodbye to you without feeling like a big part of the game is being ripped away from us, but knowing you, and the class individual you are, you'll continue to get the respect you deserve from the fans that love you as a player... don't discount the amount of respect you've earned, even among those who should consider you "one of the enemy"!!! You'll do well in whatever you do, but please, I beg you, hang around long enough so we can have a farewell cheer for you at Fenway... You've earned it, and we owe it to you... even if you decide to play that day, and light our arses up like you usually do, we'll still be better off having been able to say our goodbyes to you...
